Officials launch effort to stem underage drinking

The Board of License Commissioners for Anne Arundel County has launched a program to reduce the amount of underage drinking in the county.

The board has distributed posters warning minors they could lose their driver's licenses if they are caught drinking alcohol, even though they may not have been driving. The posters also warn minors they could be fined or jailed if convicted.

Liquor board inspectors and police will monitor alcoholic beverage outlets near schools, prom locations and other areas known to attract underage drinkers. Inspectors will pose as clerks in licensed establishments and issue citations to minors who try to buy alcoholic beverages.

The liquor board, Board of License Commissioners and the state's attorney's office, sheriff and police departments of Anne Arundel County remind the community, particularly during this graduation, prom and summer vacation season, to drink alcoholic beverages only if you are over age 21, and then to do so responsibly, and to never drink alcoholic beverages while operating a water craft or automobile.

Information: 410-222-1148.
